Soul of Strings - Jens Egert

SOUL OF STRINGS is a Studio Production dominated by two Instruments: the western Guitar and the Indian String Instrument Sarod, as shown on the cover photo. Although they speak different languages they complement each other through communicating with dialogs creating a specific mood of the tune with melodic movements. The contrast of the instruments become obvious by the harmonic, supporting structure of the Guitar and the melodic subltle melodies of the northindian Sarod or Sitar. The meeting of two music systems are melting with each other in order to flow into the Sound ocean of World Music.
